1]. Visit uShaka Marine World in Durban
uShaka Marine World Incorporates fresh and sea water, natural materials, the re-creation of a wreck of a 1940's cargo ship, with the 5th largest aquarium in the world by volume of water, coupled with indigenous African imagery, lush vegetation and maritime images of the Port of Durban, plus a water slides amusement park, uShaka is a complete 'Marine World'.
2]. Watch a rugby match at Kings Park
Kings Park Stadium currently hosts The Natal Sharks (the slightly adapted name given to the above rugby team when they compete in South Africa's main domestic rugby competition, the Currie Cup and the Super 14 tournament).
3]. Play a round of golf at Windsor Park Municipal Golf Course
Windsor Park is a hugely appealing course to play - it is not easy but its demands are not beyond the reaches of average golfers. The layout is heavily treed. It is the trees, which more than any other factor dictate the playing strategy at Windsor. It is a very attractive golf course planted with enough evergreens to avoid ever looking bleak, even in autumn.
4]. See and be seen at The Vodacom Durban July
The excitement of Vodacom Durban July Day surpasses that of any other event on the African continent. 56 000 people are expected at Greyville to witness South Africa’s best thoroughbreds storm down the home straight to the finish of the R2 million, Grade 1 Vodacom Durban July. If you haven't secured reservations, there are many casual restaurants, including Greyville's popular Al Fresco area, The Paddock, where you can relax and enjoy the atmosphere.
5]. Try your luck gambling at the Suncoast Casino
If winning is on your agenda, then the 7 000 m˛ casino, with both smoking & non-smoking facilities, 1250 slot machines and 50 game tables (Blackjack, Poker, Roulette, Punto Banco and Dice), the Suncoast is just the place to go! Luxurious Salon Privé, private gaming rooms, ample food and bar facilities - time spent at the Suncoast is always great fun.
6]. Take a rickshaw ride along the beachfront
There are only about twenty registered ricksha-pullers in Durban. They are noted for their magnificent head-dresses resplendent with beads and other decorations. A great way to get around and feel like a real tourist. This fleet of 'tuk-tuk' type three-wheelers has augmented public transport in the city and is a wonderful way to see the "Golden Mile", the 6 kilometres of Durban Beachfront.
7]. Shop for spices at the Victoria Street market
There are around 180 stalls selling basketwork and brassware, wood articles as well as meat, fish, fruit and vegetables. The stalls' main attractions are the exotic spices imported from India. They will transform your curries to fabulous!
8]. Visit the Mangrove Swamps - On the North Bank of the Mgeni River
The area is used as a Nature Conservation Education Centre. The black mangrove, the red mangrove, and the white mangrove may be seen. On the shoreline, there are sand dunes where creeping plants and pioneer scrub are to be found. There is some birdlife, including the Mangrove Kingfisher, Curlew and Water Dikkop. The Natal Nightjar may sometimes be heard. With the help of Lions International, a boardwalk has been built over the channels to gain access. Additional info see: Beachwood Mangrove reserve.
9]. Buy Zulu crafts and artwork at the beachfront market
Spend a few hours browsing around the Durban beachfront market. You will find wonderful examples of traditional beadwork and basketry for sale at incredibly low prices.
10]. Join an organised tour of the Indian District
The Indian district is around Grey and Victoria Streets. The Tourist Board organises a two and a half hour “Oriental Walkabout” of this area, which includes a visit to the Victoria St Market and the muthi market. You can book by phoning +27 (0)31 304-4934.
